3... 2... 1... Taos, we have a problem
Feb 10, 2006 - 02:53 PMI love those countdown pedestrian walk signals. While standing at the curb, I imagine sitting in the pilot's seat of VSS Enterprise, nervous and not-quite-ready to blast off into the galaxy.
But as the mother ship levels off and my cockpit's numerical display descends closer to zero hour, some little old lady shoves me into the street, yelling: "Run, you dimwit! We'll never make it across, if you keep lollygagging."
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no, I’m a rocket man
--Elton John & Bernie Taupin
